Cooper and Silver Pool Staining ?

Postby gregfacer » Mon 30 Jan, 2023 22:10

Looking for some expertise.

I switched from Chlorine/Sale to Copper/Silver (Bionizer) aboiut 12 months ago.

Ive noticed recently staining on my entire pool and floor.

My pool stats are PH 7.3, ALK 110, Cooper 0.6ppm, Chorine 0, but I do drop in 1 L once a week typically before or after a storm.

Here are some photos and video underwater to help identify. Your help is appreciated

Cant open any of the photos unfortunately.
Staining is the issue that hardly any ionizer seller will tell you about. Not so bad in a vinyl liner pool or fibreglass but I would never fit one to a plaster/tiled pool.
I may not give you the answer you want to hear, but I will give an honest opinion of your situation as you decribe it.

Exactly, that's why I took my units out.

The OP never returned, probably didnt give them the answer they wanted to hear, sometimes the truth is hard to listen to.

Exactly and WHY I removed mine. Now wondering if an acid wash would even help at all.

You could give it a try on a small patch
